Rare Mongolian Chlorite Included Sceptered Dipyramid Quartz Cluster with Feldspa
Dimension: 5.9cm x 4.8cm x 4.7cm
Locality: Huanggang Mine, Hexigten Banner, Ulanhad League, Inner Mongolia, China
An aesthetic cluster of Bi-Pyramidal Quartz Scepters which exhibits high transparency and breathtaking finely detailed chiseled etching, a typical characteristic of Mongolian quartz. Every quartz crystal termination on this very aesthetic and striking specimen is a Sceptered Dipyramid, even the tiny crystals. These came from a small pocket find in 2012 and were soon disappeared from the market.
The scepters are transparent, highly lustrous and are coated-with and included-with greenish Chlorite. Scattered white Feldspar and Magnetite crystals are a nice accent. A very rare type of quartz from this locale as Mongolian quartz are usually Hedenbergite included. This reminds me of the Chlorite included quartz from the Himalayan Mountains range.
